What is Hacking Generation Y

Hacking Generation Y was formed to promote youth entrepreneurship through collaborative learning. It was founded in 2014 by Michael Matias who, at the time of HackGenY’s inception, was interning at Dan Ariely’s Irrational Labs. Matias, who has just graduated himself from high school, created HackGenY to bring together high school students who craved entrepreneurial engagement, and to excite young men and women in joining and continuing education in this field.

The first Hacking Generation Y - Silicon Valley was co-organized with Yonatan Oren, a current high school senior at Gunn High School, in Palo Alto. Yonatan is passionate about technology and Computer Science education, and loves programming.
